Visual Arts

Visual Arts Boylan’s Visual Art’s Program aims to stimulate and guide students in their total self-development and growth. Through art, the aim is to help students acquire and use both knowledge and skills toward the goal of personal growth in many aspects: cognitive, perceptual, social, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, and fine motor development.

Acknowledging a wide range of student personalities and abilities, the Visual Arts Program strives to provide a variety of experiences in varied media to facilitate self-expression, artistic development, and increased self-esteem through the production of artworks.

Visual Arts students at Boylan have the opportunity to participate in:

  • Four years of art curriculum including AP and graphic design courses
  • Monthly Art Club activities
  • Field trips
  • Boylan’s Fine Arts Fair
  • Mosaic, a Boylan-published anthology of student literacy and visual arts
  • Community events including Stroll on State, snow sculpting competition, and local murals
  • Local and regional art shows including those hosted by Rock Valley College, Northern Illinois University, and the Rockford Art Museum
  • Presentations from college art departments
  • Art internship
